Get ready for new twist on Jassi Jaisi…

After penning Kasautii Zindagi Kay on STAR Plus, scriptwriter Rekkha Modi has now moved on to Sony?s Jassi Jaisi Koi Nahin. Modi was approached by the makers of Jassi a few days back and has already completed a major track for the show in the coming weeks. ?I want to take the focus back to Jassi. I have been watching the serial on a regular basis and think it has great potential to grow.?

When asked if she felt the show was losing focus, Modi said, ?The ratings for Jassi are going up, and with the introduction of new characters like Ketaki Dave and others, the audience is getting to see a fresh new start to the show.?

Without divulging details about the track she has penned, Rekkha said, ?Jassi is the heart of the show. I want to get the focus back on her and create some exciting dramatic situations.? (From: Mid-Day)
